    i studied marketing for some time, and i can honestly say that when it comes to product purchases a large percentage of people buy things that just look "pretty" so maybe they would have had more success... maybe not enough to fully justify production costs however, definitely there would be more in the wild though if they looked this good

    The physical device itself was very attractive. In these alternate colors it would have been beautiful.

    The PlayBook could have done very well for BlackBerry. It's a shame they messed up the launch so thoroughly in so many ways.

    Don't get me wrong, I do like it, but white always reminds me of that stupid fruit. So, I'll stick with black, please...

    It started off well, only bombed later on

    It barely started off well.

    For its original $600 price point, it was a big paper weight. It didn't even launch with an email app!! What a joke that was.

    When 2.0 came out, it was nice, but a year late.

    The $200 price point got it moving and was nice as well, but too little too late. The momentum was gone.

    Mine are black, but I just purchased a new neoprene cover from Crackberry, cause I lost one. Opened the package and it is that beautiful tardis blue with black on the inside, so opposite to the original covers ! - Figure they must be running low on NIB supllies and I got one of those specials. I love it and it will be difficult to leave behind like the one I lost

    Are you saying that the colors are opposite of what they used to be? The case/sleeve is reversible, I'm not sure if that's what you mean...

    The neoprene cases are not reversible. If You try to turn them insideout, the inside stitches show.

    You can still see the seam on the black side...both sides say blackberry - tag for blue side and imprint on black - seems reversible to me

    Uhh, that's a no.
    1) The cloth tag that has the word blackberry printed on it in letters and a small logo is attached to the inside if both cases and the inside is stiched.
    2) The outside of the black case has the logo and the word blackberry imprinted across the bottom of one side case
    3) the blue case only has the 7 'berries' logo imprinted in the middle on one side of the case.
    So basically its not just the same case turned inside out, its a different design as with the different colour playbooks, probably a few were made for marketing and later just dropped.

    Anyway, I love the blue case !

    The PlayBook would have been white hot with that back. Sad.

    I love that blue and would have been worth a premium. White might be too much as I can see it getting dirty fast. The problem with multiple colors is the inventory issue having to have sufficient of each based on initial estimates. Apple could pull it off as they could stock covers in their stores and when a customer bought a unit change the cover. Not talking about a skin but physical cover.

    But from my understanding the original concept was an enterprise level device not necessarily for the consumer so there is less a business case for multiple colors on larger orders for instance if IBM ordered them then tooling up to make them with IBM blue covers, etc. The the cover could also include the IBM logo in lieu of or in addition to the bB logo.
